2020 Goals:

In the coming year, we will continue to focus on these strategic imperatives:
1. To even the playing field for New Hampshire’s most vulnerable citizens by providing equal access to high quality, affordable, life-changing services, with special emphasis on prevention.

2. To enhance our impact within communities across the state, providing workers in homes, schools, prisons, hospitals, courts, neighborhoods, streets  — wherever you need us to be — to deliver a vast array of services tailored to specific needs.

3. To recruit and retain workers who are at the top of their respective fields as we expand our evidence-based practice in all regions of the state.

4. To grow in response to community needs by developing innovative programs and partnerships, expanding our geographic footprint, and increasing revenue streams of unrestricted funds to improve long-range sustainability of programs.

Fundraising Events:

Waypoint Celebration: A mission-centric, banquet-styled, multimedia event designed to celebrate our community involvement, honor an exemplary advocate for children, and renew our commitment to New Hampshire citizens. The 2019 event takes place November 13 at Manchester Country Club. WZID Christmas is for Kids Radiothon: A year-end campaign culminating in a live broadcast to fulfill holiday wishes of children in need and support vital services for struggling families. Airs on 95.7 WZID-FM, early December. Waypoint SleepOut: A cold March night spent outside to raise awareness and funds to aid New Hampshire youth who are experiencing homelessness.
